March 10th – John 10:2 Prayer Group We live in a world of noise. Almost everywhere we go, we find sounds competing with our minds, keeping us from letting our thoughts get below the surface level. Hearing God's voice means not listening to the noise of the world around us. It's not easy, but it can be done. In John 10:2,3-Jesus, the good shepherd says that his sheep know and listen to his voice. There will be a group meeting once a month on the second Saturday of each month beginning in March. We will meet in the prayer room at 10am for about an hour. You are all invited to come and practice listening to the voice of the shepherd. See Debbie Fung-A-Fat for more information.(303)717-2414 or email@example.com
